This is a lovely birthday portrait, and what says 'family' more than a birthday celebration? The candle light is beautiful.

I like the candlelight and the expression, but I am a bit uncertain about the mood of the photograph. Whether it might be depicting a sad situation or else.

Making a wish? Looks as if he is saying "YES!" Nice idea to use just the candle light. I might have cropped the left a lot to take him off center.

a little motion blur, impossible for a candle and almost impossible for a child to hold still. Great shot.

I like the idea, cute kid and the candlelight looks great. My two niggles would be that his hand being out of focus is a bit distracting and the candles look like they're only in a slice of cake, which makes the scene appear a bit false. It may have been set-up for the challenge but a whole cake would have better furthered the illusion. Overall, I do like it, a nice sweet shot.
